HISTORY OF VOTING

Declaration of Independence

1776

When this country announced its independence from Britain, voting rights were based on property ownership. This typically meant that those voting were white males over the age of 21 of Protestant religion.

1787

In the newly drafted Constitution, states were given the power to set voting mandates and most were still favorable to white males who owned property.

1830

Many states had dropped religion and property ownership as requirements for voting and with such a large percentage of the population at the polls, political parties were beginning to develop.

African American Voting

1868

The 14th Amendment recognizes African Americans as citizens, giving them the right to vote. However, state officials continue attempts to deny this right.

1870

African Americans were given the right to vote in the 15th Amendment. It prohibited any state or local government from denying that right.

1890

Wyoming becomes the first state to recognize women's right to vote and provide for it in a state constitution.

1913

Voting power is expanded with 17th Amendment, calling for the popular election of US. senators.

Native Americans Vote

1940

Congress recognizes Native Americans as citizens. However, it wasn't until 1947 that all states granted them the right to vote.

1964

The 24th Amendment declares that no person should be denied the right to vote because they cannot pay a "poll tax."
